The story of Persona – trinity soul – is set in the futuristic Ayanagi City. Ten years prior to the events of ­– trinity soul –, there was an outbreak of a strange disease, known as “Mass Apathy Syndrome.” The story revolves around a 17 year old boy named Shin Kanzato, who, along with his younger brother Jun, meet their older brother Ryo for the first time in a decade. During the reunion, strange, ominous incidents begin to plague Ayanagi City. The crew members of a submarine mysteriously vanish, the “Apathy Syndrome” reappears, and a horrible string of student murders is on the rise. While Ryo is busy investigating the causes of all these incidents, something happens to Shin, which awakens his Persona.
